DIY Marshmallow Olaf

Frozen has invaded my home based child daycare :-)

We were doing a unit on snow & winter. My kids love the Olaf character. The girls act out the movie in costumes while wearing sparkly shoes. The boys mostly like Sven & Olaf.

This would be a great craft for a Frozen birthday party!

Because everyone loves Olaf & marshmallows (in my home they do), this craft & treat was a perfect for with out theme.

I found the Olaf faces online, printed them up & taped a tooth pick to the back side. Now we could have spent hours crafting an Olaf face out if a marshmallow, but let's be realistic I'm dealing with 2, 3 & 4 year olds...we don't have time for that!
Then, we used a mini pretzel rod to piece the body together & frosting to tick to feet and raisin buttons on.

Here's what you need to make one Olaf:
1 Regular size marshmallow
1 Extra large size marshmallow
2 Mini marshmallows
3 Mini pretzel rods (we used gluten free)
3 Raisins
1 Olaf head

Even my 2nd grader loved this! 

Have a great Day!
